AN UPDATE FROM SOS MINISTRIES IN UGANDA  5/29/24

Dear Friends,

 

The Lord continues to work mightily in our community and the surrounding villages. Thank you for your continued prayers, love, and support toward our mission. This summer we are looking forward to a full schedule of ministry opportunities. In this newsletter we wanted to provide you a brief update on Legacy Christian Academy, just one of our ministries here at SOS. We hope you are encouraged!

 

Blessings,

The SOS Team

A LEGACY ACADEMY UPDATE

Our Legacy students just wrapped up their first term of 2024! We could not be more proud of our students for their commitment to academic success and fun! With the high-challenge environment that Legacy provides academically, we never want to lose sight of kids just being kids. In the pursuit of fun, our Legacy girls’ basketball team became the best upcoming team in the Luweero region! 

This term, we were able to celebrate that all of our grade 7 candidates graduated into high school with excellent scores on their national exams. This may not sound like much to you, but contrasted with the low literacy and high dropout rates in Uganda this is a massive feat for our amazing students.

 

Academics and fun aside, our heart is for students to be discipled unto Jesus! Through their curriculum and chapel, we are seeing the Lord move in these students’ lives. This term, we had the opportunity to give each of our students their own copy of the Bible! Being “Sufficiency of Scripture Ministries,” it is our firm belief that this gift could change everything for a child’s eternity.

PRAY WITH US:

  • We have 12 visiting teams between now and October! They will be helping with various things like teacher training and VBS at Legacy, speech therapy and dental work at the medical clinic. Another team is running a ladies conference! Pray that we’d be able to steward their time for maximum Kingdom impact!

 

  • We have 8 guest professors coming in for term 2 (May-mid August) at Shepherds Training College to help teach certificate and degree students. Pray for their time with SOS to be sweet and that their guidance would help create world-changing STC pastors!



  • Shepherds Training College is undergoing a rigorous accreditation process. Please pray for wisdom as Shepherds Training College makes adjustments to our degree program as we seek to comply with government regulations as part of our accreditation obligations.
